Arnold Pouteau's


-- from Arnold Pouteau's - (?)
A picture I named "Dark City..." I took this one on my way from Brooklyn to Manhattan when low clouds invaded the City. The overall atmosphere was surreal. Somewhere between Blade Runner and Gotham. In a word an atmosphere, an energy, I have only experienced in NYC.

My 2nd favorite photo features Human Silhouettes (I really Love this subject). It was taken on top of the rockfeller center. When I was up there, it was quite packed. Amongst the people that were up there, 2 Persons were contemplating the Empire State Building, seated, steady, inspired and inspiring. This picture conveys what I feel for this city: Respect and Inspiration.
